The all-new You Got This Stadium tour will showcase Nitro Circus’ fearless riders braving the biggest ramps ever seen in both FMX and BMX next year, and once again New Zealand is set to reap the rewards of this boundary-breaking insanity.
Not resting on their laurels, the Nitro Circus crew has created not one, but two all new ramps which will now make their way to New Zealand this summer. As the tour organisers were unsure how the new ramps would travel, New Zealand was due to see the proven Next Level tour setup to New Zealand - a show that has been touring Europe, Australia and North American cities in 2018.
But after unveiling the re-imagined 55 foot Giganta ramp in North America in September, complete with a takeoff kicker more than three metres taller than anything Nitro Circus has toured before, the results were too good to pass up.
“Our new Next Level Giganta ramp has been such an unprecedented success on our just completed North American tour - with audiences being blown away by the mind boggling new tricks the guys have been able to throw down - that we made the decision to bring this ramp and show to New Zealand,” Nitro Circus President Andy Edwards explained. “So in one insane show, Kiwi fans will now get to witness not one but two Next Level set ups: in FMX, and BMX/skate. We all cannot wait to bring this show to New Zealand.”
Taupo’s Jed Mildon, the world’s first triple and quad backflipping BMXer, and arguably the biggest name in New Zealand action sports, campaigned to bring the double-ramp show to his home crowd, adamant that New Zealand sees the very best version of the Nitro Circus show.
“I just knew from the moment I first hit this ramp six weeks ago in Montreal, that New Zealand had to have this ramp,” Mildon said. “The FMX boys have done such a great job progressing their sport over the past 12 months, it’s now our time to catch up on the Giganta side. With this brand new ramp technology, I cannot wait to throw down in front of my people, in what will be the best shows New Zealand has ever seen. It’s going to be epic.”
“I may be biased, but I’m not the only one on tour that says it - New Zealand fans are the most wild and passionate fans anywhere in the world. So it’s only right that they get the very best version of our show and I am honoured to have played a small role in making this happen,” he adds.
Combined, these new ramps - one a radically expanded version of Nitro’s infamous Giganta Ramp, the other the massive FMX Next Level ramp -- will ensure that the March 2019 tour will be the biggest New Zealand shows in Nitro Circus history, as the best athletes in FMX, BMX and Skate push themselves to their absolute limits on the biggest ramps in action sports. Adding to the fear factor, in true Nitro Circus style, You Got This will feature a host of new crazy contraptions that have no business flying through the air, along with a few other surprises that will be revealed as the tour dates near.
The Nitro Circus: You Got This Stadium Tour is a wild, electrifying night of action sports excitement Kiwi fans do not want to miss.
